Top Stanley Cup Contenders

    Top Eastern Conference Contenders

      The Eastern Conference had won three straight Stanley Cups before the St Louis Blues won in 2019. Three of the top four contenders for the 2020 Stanley Cup, based on the opening odds, reside in the East – Vegas, Boston, and Toronto are all tied for the second-best odds .

      Atlantic Division

        The last time a team from the Atlantic division won the Stanley Cup was the Boston Bruins in 2011. But three of the top four contenders, based on the opening odds, are all from the Atlantic: Tampa Bay, Boston, and Toronto.

        Metropolitan Division

          Teams from the Metro division are responsible for the Eastern Conference’s last three Stanley Cups: Washington in 2018 and Pittsburgh in 2016 and 2017. However, it’s the only division that didn’t have a team open in the top eight 2020 Stanley Cup contenders – the Capitals were tied for the ninth-best odds.

          Top Western Conference Contenders

            Eight of the top 12 contenders for the 2020 Stanley Cup reside in the Western Conference, one of these teams being the reigning champion St Louis Blues.

            Central Division

              In 2019, the St Louis Blues brought the cup back to the Western Conference for the first time since 2015. However, they open the 2019-20 season looking up at the Colorado Avalanche on the Stanley Cup odds board.

              Pacific Division

                For a second straight season, the Vegas Golden Knights have opened with the best odds to win the Stanley Cup among Western Conference teams.

                Odds for Teams Who Have Never Won a Cup

                  Stats for Teams Searching for Their First Cup

                  Team Years in the NHL Cup Final Appearances Closest They’ve Come
                  Vancouver Canucks 48 3 Game 7 Cup Final losses in both 2011 and 1994. No one in Vancouver will ever forget LaFayette’s post or the ensuing riots.
                  Buffalo Sabres 48 2 Game 6 in 1999. Losing in overtime, no thanks to Brett Hull’s foot in the crease.
                  San Jose Sharks 27 1 Game 6 in 2016. They’ve never been able to shed their label as chokers.
                  Nashville Predators 20 1 Game 6 in 2017. Nashville fans still rue the bad call on Sissons’ go-ahead goal.
                  Ottawa Senators 26 1 Game 5 in 2007. A heartbreaking series for that culminated in the infamous Emery-Phillips mixup. 
                  Vegas Golden Knights 1 1 Game 5 in 2018. Luca Sbisa hands the game to Lars Eller to end the Knights historic run.
                  Florida Panthers 25 1 Swept by Colorado in 1996, despite the year of the rat.
                  Arizona Coyotes 22 0 Lost in 5 games to the LA Kings in 2012. Dustin Brown isn’t admired by Glendale faithful.
                  Winnipeg Jets 24 (1979-1996, 2011-2018) 0 Defeated by the LA Kings in 5 games in 2018. Canada’s best hope was no match for Ryan Reaves’ heroics.
                  Minnesota Wild 18 0 Swept in the 2003 Conference Finals. Despite a disappointing playoff history, they did end Patrick Roy’s career in spectacular fashion.
                  Columbus Blue Jackets 18 0 The Jackets have only won 4 playoff games in their history, 2 in 2014 and 2 in 2018. They probably beat the Caps if not for Lars Eller’s shin, though.

                  The St Louis Blues were a member of this list last season, but scratched their name off here by etching their name onto the Stanley Cup in 2019.

                  Odds for Canadian Teams

                    The Stanley Cup has not been won by a Canadian team since 1993, when the Montreal Canadiens hoisted it.
